Retroreflectivity video earns a 2001 Communicator Award. (Public Information and Information Exchange).

An FHWA video titled Night Lights: How Retroreflectivily Makes Roadways Safe, produced in coordination with the American Traffic Safety Services Association, won second place in the 2001 Communicator Awards.

The award recognizes projects that exceed industry standards in production or communication skills. This international competition received more than 3,400 entries. The video markets FHWA's Run-off-Road: Retroreflectivity program to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities on our Nation's roadways. The film takes a nontechnical look at how retroreflectivity, or nighttime visibility of signs and pavement markings, helps save lives by making roadways safer and easier to travel. Targeted to a general audience, the video defines the science of retroreflectivity used in roadway signs, pavement markings, and other retroreflective materials on roadways.

The Night Lights video was previously named a Finalist Winner in the 2001 Aegis Awards. To request a copy of the video, contact Peter Hatzi at FHWA at 202-366-8036 or James Baron at the American Traffic Safely Services Association (ATSSA) at 540-368-1701.
